68th Annual Cannes Film Festival - "Sicario" Photocall

Passing the torch!

Julie Andrews has given her blessing for Emily Blunt to play the iconic Mary Poppins in the remake of the 1964 Disney classic film, and (as I’d imagine) Blunt felt…relief, but also more pressure to be GOOD.

Blunt revealed to Entertainment Weekly that Mary Poppins Returns director Rob Marshall met up with Andrews in the Hamptons where he spilled the beans on casting for the Poppins reboot. And that Emily’s glad things went OKAY:

“Rob said he was in the Hamptons, and he saw [Andrews], and he said, ‘It’s top secret, but Emily Blunt’s paying Mary Poppins,’” Blunt said. “And she went, ‘Oh, wonderful!’”

“I felt like I wanted to cry,” she continued. “It was lovely to get her stamp of approval. That took the edge off it, for sure.”

The Devil Wears Prada actress explained why she’s so nervous to take on the musical role. “I feel a little more trepidation with this [character] because she’s so emblematic of people’s nostalgia,” she said. “It’s such an important character in people’s childhood.”

However, the Girl on the Train star has a different take on Poppins than Andrews’ interpretation of the character, first created by author P.L. Travers in a series of eight books. “We’re delving into the books a lot more, which is a different version of the character, I’ll say that much,” she said. “She’s a little meaner, yeah.”

Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda will star alongside Blunt as a lamplighter, Jack, and Meryl Streep is also in talks to join the remake, which is scheduled to hit theaters in December 2018.

Are you excited about seeing Emily as Mary Poppins? Emily’s a good pick, in my opinion, and I think she’ll do justice to the role.

Kate Gosselin: “Jon Changed Overnight.”

Kate Gosselin used her millionaire boyfriend for ratings?

What a messss.

Jon Gosselin has really been alienated during his divorce, which is not a bad thing because he seems to be a tremendous douche, but it also seems sad to me, because it does still seem like he wants more contact with his kids. During his split with Kate Gosselin, he had numerous girlfriends, including various babysitters to his children (UGH), the daughter of Kate’s plastic surgeon, a Star Magazine writer (who went to hookup and have children with Jon’s onetime buddy, the very abusive Michael Lohan), and coeds. In fact, it seems weird that he even got so many women to actually WANT to see him naked. But the heart want what the heart wants, and sometimes that’s sad sack Jon Gosselin.

So in an interview when Kate says that he changed overnight I believe her. That doesn’t mean I find her blameless though, seeing as I think around that time she was sleeping with the family’s married bodyguard? Didn’t she make Jon sleep above the garage, leading him to assume they were separated? Confusing. And, gross. But here’s Kate:

The relationship’s dissolution was still a shock to Kate, who tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue that her ex-husband transformed suddenly.

“I really would have thought he’d have been here for the long haul,” Kate says. “The weirdest thing is that overnight he became a different person.”

Kate, 41, says Jon began buying motorcycles and cars, and staying out late – despite having eight young kids – including sextuplets – at home.

“People closest to me thought I was crazy and making it up,” Kate says now. “When they saw it for themselves, they were like, ‘Whoa.’ They saw the proof – and then I saw all the letters from women saying, ‘I’ve been there, too.’

(Via People)

I’m sure that was super traumatic. BUT- her kids only get one father and instead of realizing that she pushed him out, making sure that she could keep the children in the media against Jon’s wishes. And those are the real victims here- the kids. Who are trapped between their parents and their parents’ mistakes. Sad.

Joshua Jackson Misses, Wants To Get Back With Diane Kruger

PICS: Joshua Jackson & Diane Kruger Hold Hands In NYC

Aw. Man, this has to be difficult.

Less than six weeks after Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson reportedly broke up for good, Page Six’s sources say that Joshua is still pining away for Diane and he would love to get back with her. Yes, even after Diane allegedly cheated on Joshua with Norman Reedus, and even after THAT that Diane still has Norman in her life somehow. And still…he pines.

Six weeks after they broke up, we’re told that Joshua Jackson wants to get back together with Diane Kruger. Pals of “The Affair” star say he’s still in love with the actress — whom he dated for 10 years until July.

“He never wanted the breakup in the first place,” said a source. “He’s pretty bummed out . . . Diane is currently wearing the pants and calling the shots with the breakup, but he wants to work things out with her,” the source continued.

Apparently Jackson has been dating other girls since the split, but his heart’s not really in the single life, the source added. Jackson was recently spotted having a marathon eight-hour lunch with “The Affair” co-star Ruth Wilson at Gemma. Shortly before the split, Kruger and Jackson moved into a New York apartment together, and the German actress said she was still mulling over whether to marry him. When asked by Net-a-Porter’s the Edit if Kruger — who is divorced — would ever consider tying the knot again, she replied, “Welcome to my dilemma.”

(Via Page Six)

This makes me so sad. I wish he like, instantly clicked with Ruth Wilson during their boozy night together, but clearly he’s still hurting, hard.  And it just makes everyone love Joshua more, doesn’t it? All the romance…the tragedy…
